Paper: Mapping the structural, magnetic and electronic behavior of (Eu1- xCax)2Ir2O7 across a metal–insulator transition

November 05, 2020

Our paper exploring the the evolution of the electronic ground state in the Weyl semimetal candidate material Eu2Ir2O7 under carrier substitution was published today.  This work revealed a coincident suppression of the metal-insulator transition and antiferromagnetism under Ca-substitution and suggests a defect-driven compensation mechanism.  The local structure and changes in local Ir-O-Ir bond angles were also studied and found not to drive the change in the electronic ground state.
